my gearbox warning light would come on after prolonged towing up steep hills with large loads, i went to safari engineering who are landy specialists and they indicated it was a problem with the GB on the 300 tdi auto. there might be two types of gearbox used on the 300 so it might have been a specific issues with my type....not sure as never really investigated it, but the guy said "Ooooh yes blah blah blah" so i went down the TD5 route. When towing on the flat it was fine but long drag hills with heavy loads and the light would come on. Anyone who has towed down to Meva will know the hills in question. For short stuff it was fine. They advised that fans dont fix the problem either but help a little bit. A lot of caravan owners i have spoken to go for the manual to steer clear of that problem as it is a widely known issue apparently....although the local landy dealer denied it being an issue on 300's.
but yours codders is a manual so you are in really good shape, just looked on ebay and it does look stunning i must say.
on my 200 the roof used to condensate and drip on your head but the 300 sunfroofs never leaked.
a landy disco with no aircon on the 200 or 300 without heat reflecting glass is a nightmare with little kiddies. luckly our has the special glass and aircon so all is comfortable in the summer heat.....just a hint if you are thinking of a landy for the family..
